EDWARDIAN

The Edwardian conservatory style is characterised by brightness and airiness, with more subtle lines than the ornate Victorian style. The Edwardian conservatory features a flat front and has a square or rectangular shape. The shape and design of the Edwardian conservatory makes it really handy for laying out furniture because no space is wasted. The Edwardian conservatory typically has a high, sloping roof style that gives a spectacular vaulted effect. Your conservatory floods with light, making it bright and airy. During the Edwardian period conservatories were only for the upper classes. It was not until the Victorian period that conservatories became more widely available. The Edwardian conservatory style is growing in popularity as you can add it onto any style of property.

VICTORIAN

The Victorian Conservatory is a very popular style of conservatory because it suits all types of houses. The Victorian style includes a bay window front, a steeply pitched roof and ornate ridge details. It was during the Victorian era that the passion for conservatories grew. Victorian Conservatory styles consist of a three-facet Victorian, a five-facet Victorian and a stretch Victorian. Your Victorian Conservatory will look traditional and graceful as well as being versatile and pleasing on the eye. At The Window Centre our roofing system will give your conservatory a distinguished and classical appearance and all our conservatories are designed to suit your needs.

LEAN TO

The Lean-to conservatory (or sunroom as it is sometimes known) is the simplest style of conservatory, with clean lines that give it a contemporary look and make them a popular conservatory for modern Properties. Whether your lean-to conservatory is traditional or contemporary, the style is perfect for properties that have restricted space under the eaves, like a bungalow, or have an area that's too awkward to accommodate a conservatory. This is because the pitch of the roof on lean-to conservatories can vary – a shallow pitch can fit under a low bungalow roof and a steeper one would be ideal for a terraced house. The simple shape of the lean-to conservatory gives you the maximum space.

P OR L SHAPE

These conservatory styles are ideal for larger, detached properties. A P-Shape combines a Lean-to conservatory with a Victorian conservatory, which can be either three-faceted or five-faceted. When you combine a Lean-to with an Edwardian style conservatory, this is called an L-shaped style. These styles of conservatories create versatile style. This is because the conservatory extends in different directions. The conservatory is, therefore, ideal for using as two separate living areas. Modern families often use the longer part of the conservatory as a lounge or dining area, with the rounded or square part being used as a children’s play area. These conservatories often require larger proportions, so are better suited for larger detached properties, giving an impressive result.

The P-Shape/L-Shape conservatory is ideal for creating maximum space whilst keeping a sense of proportion in the property. The beauty of these conservatory styles is that they can add much-needed space to the house without swallowing up too much of the garden or requiring much in the way of garden redesign.

T SHAPE

The T-Shape conservatory style works best on larger properties. The T-Shape is a combination conservatory style featuring a central projection. It can be Victorian, Gable or Georgian in style. The T-shape conservatory is a very versatile style, allowing you to create two distinct living spaces within the one room. With T-shape conservatories, the central part projects into the garden, which exaggerates the sense of bringing the garden into the home. The central projection on a T-shape conservatory style can also create a ‘porch effect’.

The T-shape conservatory is not only one of the most beautiful styles available, but also works well in just about any home. The T-shape conservatory tends to be a large style and is a good way of making a traditional Edwardian or Victorian style bigger, perhaps for a larger family. The T-shape conservatory is better suited to properties with large garden as the part of the conservatory extends away from the house into the garden.

GABLE END

With a gable-end conservatory, the front of the roof doesn't slope back to the centre. Instead, the front of the conservatory stays upright, like the end of a house. This is where the gable-end conservatory style gets its name from.

A gable-end conservatory is square or rectangular in style, like an Edwardian conservatory. This gives you maximum space to plan the interior of your gable-end conservatory. The gable front of the conservatory adds style and also maximises light coming into the room, while the height of the conservatory gives the room a feeling of space.
